MACE will be hosting an X-Wing Miniatures tournament! X-Wing is an exciting game of fast-paced ship-to-ship combat. Two players take control of their squad of X-Wings, TIE fighters, and other ships from the Star Wars universe and pit them against each other in thrilling, tactical space battles. Choose your faction and build your squad of daring Rebels, merciless Imperials, or treacherous Scum and Villainy, and pilot your forces to victory!
We will be using the standard FFG tournament rules, so bring your favorite 100 point squad. This will be a relaxed tier event. From Fantasy Flight: tournaments at this level are welcoming to all players, regardless of experience level. Players are encouraged to help each other improve and learn, so long as it does not significantly disrupt the game. The focus is on creating a fun and friendly environment.
There will be a number of standard, 75 minute Swiss rounds based on attendance, followed by a cut and single elimination rounds (again depending on the number of players). The tournament format will use FFG’s basic tournament structure, and the applicable current event documents and FAQ. All tournament documents can be found on FFG’s X-Wing page under support: https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/products/x-wing/

About Star Wars: X-Wing
Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game is a tactical ship-to-ship combat game in which players take control of powerful Rebel X-wings and nimble Imperial TIE fighters, facing them against each other in fast-paced space combat. Featuring stunningly detailed and painted miniatures, the X-Wing Miniatures Game recreates exciting Star Wars space combat throughout its several included scenarios. Select your crew, plan your maneuvers, and complete your mission! Whatever your chosen vessel, the rules of X-Wing facilitate fast and visceral gameplay that puts you in the middle of Star Wars fiercest firefights. Each ship type has its own unique piloting dial, which is used to secretly select a speed and maneuver each turn. After planning maneuvers, each ship`s dial is revealed and executed (starting with the lowest skilled pilot). So whether you rush headlong toward your enemy showering his forward deflectors in laser fire, or dance away from him as you attempt to acquire a targeting lock, you`ll be in total control throughout all the tense dogfighting action. Star Wars: X-Wing features a number of unique missions, and each has its own set of victory conditions; with such a broad selection of missions, only clever and versatile pilots employing a range of tactics will emerge victorious. What`s more, no mission will ever play the same way twice, thanks to a range of customization options, varied maneuvers, and possible combat outcomes. Damage, for example, is determined through dice and applied in the form of a shuffled Damage Deck. Each time your fighter sustains a hit, you`ll draw a card that assigns a special handicap. Was your targeting computer damaged, affecting your ability to acquire a lock on the enemy? Perhaps an ill-timed weapon malfunction will limit your offensive capabilities. Or worse yet, your pilot could be injured, compromising his ability to focus on the life-and-death struggle in which he is engaged… The Star Wars: X-Wing starter set includes everything you need to begin your battles, such as scenarios, cards, and fully assembled and painted ships. What`s more, Star Wars: X-Wing`s quick-to-learn ruleset establishes the foundation for a system that can be expanded with your favorite ships and characters from the Star Wars universe.
